Going beyond

Now go beyond what you’ve achieved already to transform your life by:

Using mindfulness to transcend the pettiness of everyday life.

Seeing the world as it is, but also with deep gratitude for what it offers.

Moving beyond being annoyed, frustrated or disappointed by others.

Letting go of demands that life or other people conform to your wishes.

Choosing to see what you can do, rather than what you can’t.

Growing in compassion for others as well as yourself.

Knowing you have the right to be safe, healthy and to flourish.

Taking the steps you need, to fulfil your potential.

Having the serenity and confidence to trust you can grow even in adversity.

Allowing yourself to develop and grow without false modesty or fear.

Choosing how you think, feel and act in any given situation.

Being mindful of the temptation to tumble back into old habits.

And choosing to act in ways that are most affirming for yourself and others.

Choose to persist

Even when everything falls to pieces again, you can choose to keep going.

You may need to rethink what you’ve been doing up until now. Perhaps you’ve been repeating the same behaviours over without any benefit. Now you’ll see this more quickly, and change course to a more helpful direction.

Take the long view and know you’ll grow even stronger with each step. Know you’ll recover meaning and purpose in life, even after setbacks and pain.

Transform and trust in yourself

Know one door may close but another will open. Shed timidity, and tolerate your fears. You can do what you need to do.

Live with intention and challenge yourself to reach your potential. Create the best version of yourself while helping others to do the same.

Transform and transcend self-imposed limits of mind and emotions.

Achieve self-mastery to create a life of challenge, meaning and fulfilment.
